A Guessing Jar celebrating Asian, South Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Guess how many kites we have in the jar! The closest 3 guesses win a prize.

We are celebrating Asian, South Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a Guessing Jar featuring kites! The book Kite Flying by Grace Lin celebrates the Chinese tradition of kite making and kite flying and lovingly depicts a family bonded by this ancient and modern pleasure. Many people believe kite flying began in China over 2,000 years ago. Check out the book to learn more!

Visit us to guess how many kites are in the Guessing Jar!  Happening all month long.
